Thank you for stopping by!

I am a Minnesota-based writer with comprehensive experience in media and nonprofit communications. I have written more than 90 published or forthcoming nonfiction books for young readers in the U.S. and Canada.

Whether writing for elementary-schoolers, newspaper readers, social media followers or corporate communicators, I keep it clear and concise while striking the right tone to engage your unique audience.
